WHITE  POCKET TOURS

                This area of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is a favorite for our guides. The palette of colors and variety of sandstone formations beckon photographers and sightseers to our White Pocket tours.               
                The off-road section of the tour begins in Houserock Valley, and for some spots we'll be in 4 wheel drive. Though our suburban is exceedingly comfortable, be aware that the ride might get a bit rough - especially after a storm. Keep your eyes to the skies- maybe you'll witness a rare California Condor.
                Our time in the White Pocket area will leave you pondering how the hand of nature created such a place. A few lone trees burst from abstract sandstone formations, where everyone sees something different. Do the rocks resemble a turtle shell? A brain? Have we landed on another planet entirely? 
                Come find out.

The views change dramatically on the drop out of the forest and down into Marble Canyon- a moment sure to take your breath away.
